Will An Uncontested Divorce Work For You?
Although an uncontested divorce can be a great way for a divorcing couple to avoid a lengthy and contentious courtroom battle, it is still important to work with an experienced lawyer through the process. Without sound legal counsel and high-quality drafting of your divorce agreement, problems can arise in obtaining approval from the court or interpretation or enforcement of the divorce agreement years after it is finalized.
At John T. Chamberlin, Attorney at Law, I have more than 30 years of legal experience handling a range of divorce-related matters for clients in Pleasanton and throughout Alameda County, California, including uncontested divorces. I will take the time to understand your unique situation, provide you with sound legal counsel and representation, and draft a high-quality divorce agreement that will meet your needs and obtain approval from the court.
Representing You In Your Uncontested Divorce
If you are seeking legal counsel in your uncontested divorce, I can provide you with:
- Sound legal analysis: I will look over the details in your divorce to make sure everything is in order in a way that will gain approval from the court. Many uncontested divorces involve complicated division of asset matters and other complex considerations. I will make sure your properties are handled appropriately and help you avoid unforeseen tax complications and other problems.
- Negotiation services: Even in the most amicable divorce, there is likely to be at least one issue that remains a sticking point for the couple. I will use my experience with alternative dispute resolution to help you come to agreement regarding any lingering issues in an efficient, amicable and effective manner.
- Divorce agreement drafting: The divorce agreement itself will need to be crafted and presented in a way that will gain approval from the court and remain legally viable after the divorce is finalized.
- Post-divorce matters: I will remain available to you even after your divorce is finalized. I represent clients in petitioning for or contesting divorce modifications if there has been a significant change in circumstances after the divorce. Also, if your ex-spouse is not living up to the terms of the divorce agreement, I can help you with enforcement.
